BlogHer15 Pink Saturday

This is the first in a series of three -- possibly more -- posts about BlogHer 2015, including a very fun giveaway. While I was in the exhibition hall meeting sponsors I looked for things that were pink with an eye to a  BlogHer Pink Saturday post. I only found a few things that were pink, but there are several others that made for pretty pictures and I liked them very much.


 This was definitely the pinkest picture I found. The figure in pink represents Fitbiotic which is one of Garden of Life's probiotics. I've wanted to try a probiotic product and was grateful for the opportunity from Garden of Life. The pink figure is holding a stuffed DNA. If anyone would like a stuffed DNA -- can't call it a stuffed animal -- just let me know and I will be glad to give it a good home with you.

The next semi-pink picture is courtesy of Best Buy. They had a very pretty setting at BlogHer and I loved this display of cookies. I can't tell you how they tasted, because in a true spirit of restraint, I didn't eat one. I knew once I started I'd be back for the entire wedding party.

There were many treats at BlogHer, but these may have been the prettiest.
Best Buy had lots of pretty in pink décor and I fell in love with both Kenny Lattimore, singer extraordinaire, and the beautiful couch behind us. Kenny could not have been nicer and I was so impressed with his kindness and friendliness. 
This bouquet isn't pink, but I thought it was lovely. The conference took place at the Midtown Hilton, which went out of their way to welcome BlogHer. They set up a section in their lounge -- complete with chargers, coffee, lemonade and cake pops -- all the necessities for a conference rest space. While my phone charged I loved watching the passing parade on the sidewalks of New York.  
These are just a few of the moments I captured at BlogHer, and in some ways they're a quick snapshot of moments of the conference. This post doesn't include the people I spent time with -- some terrific bloggers -- and the serious discussions that took place about social media, the status of women around the world, maternal health and social issues in America. Those issues are for other posts. 
But now I'm (somewhat) back to my regular life -- grocery shopping, the gym and Weight Watchers. However, without quite realizing it, this would-be romance writer signed up for several events for the Romance Writers of America Conference that takes place in New York this week. Both programs should be fun, so it's not quite a return to regular life just yet. 
As ever, thanks for visiting and have a sweet week.
Please note: I received Garden of Life probiotics as a review product. The opinions are all my own.

Carol, thanks for stopping by and the sweet comment. I've looked for those conferences close to me but have not been able to attend. Maybe someday.
Looks like you really had a great time.

At the recommendation of my MD, I've been a fan of probiotics for a few years now. That pink spotted leotard is a panic! What incredible poise to stand so still (presumably) so long!

Thanks for taking us along!

Carol, A cozy place to sit and watch people would be alluring to me. Of course I would need a coffee...and maybe one of those pink wedding cookies. LOL. Blessings to you , xoxo,Susie
